Watches for men and watches for women by TAG Heuer: the fine art of keeping time.

Quality and accuracy are the bywords when it comes to Swiss watches and luxury watches. And within this elite universe, TAG Heuer timepieces are in a league all their own. With both innovative design and advanced technology, they go far beyond luxury timepieces or sports watches – they are a class unto themselves.

By combining manual craftsmanship with the best, most advanced technology, TAG Heuer ladies’ and men’s watches perpetuate a remarkable legacy while encouraging quality and innovation. Entirely modern and eternally refined, a TAG Heuer watch is more than mere aesthetics. Its automatic watches possess high frequencies ranging from 21,600 vibrations per hour to up to 360,000 (as with the Calibre 360) – a guarantee of outstanding mechanical precision. A number of its automatic watch movements thus bear the prestigious Official Swiss Chronometer Control (C.O.S.C.) certificate.

Unsurprisingly, TAG Heuer chronograph watches are recognised as the height of Swiss watch precision. The official timekeeper of one of the world’s most celebrated races, the Monaco Grand Prix, TAG Heuer is also the partner of both Oracle Team USA – winner of the prestigious America’s Cup – and Formula 1 automotive manufacture McLaren, in the ultimate pact of speed and timekeeping precision.

TAG Heuer timepieces likewise astound aesthetically: created by expert specialists, these luxury Swiss watches harmoniously combine the best noble materials, such as sinuous calfskin or refined alligator leather, exquisite solid gold or strong stainless steel, at times accenting them with more modern, innovative materials, like high-tech rubber or contemporary fabric. In doing so, TAG Heuer turns preconceived notions of sports watches and luxury watches on their head. Its quality finishes, including fine brushing, black PVD finish and ruthenium treatment, are at once classic yet avant-garde attractive yet practical.

Not to be outdone, its watches for women are the pinnacle of restrained elegance. Most notably, its diamond watches add a trace of womanly sparkle to the famed men’s watch models for which TAG Heuer is known: the TAG Heuer Carrera, the Monaco, the Link, the Aquaracer and the TAG Heuer Formula 1. Featuring luxury materials and uncluttered lines, these sophisticated ladies’ timepieces perfectly uphold the band’s heritage of fine workmanship and impeccable precision that have been its hallmark for more than a century.

Indeed, TAG Heuer timepieces represent more than simple luxury or precision. They symbolise the finest Swiss craftsmanship thrust brazenly into the future. Where dependability meets aesthetics, artistry meets technology, elegance meets the avant-garde: TAG Heuer gives new meaning to luxury watches for men and women.

06 Sep. THE FASTEST MECHANICAL REGULATING ORGAN EVER DESIGNED,

  • MIKROTIMER

As in racecar construction, the principal concern in chronograph engineering is precision, speed and readability. This is determined by the chronograph’s oscillating power and construction. Traditionally, oscillators used in chronograph manufacturing beat at 3, 4 or 5 Hz, which is the equivalent of 21,600, 28,800, 36,000 beats per hour respectively.

The Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Chronograph pushes the concept even further, beyond what anyone dreamed possible - and past what everyone said was impossible. Using complex differential kinematics, TAG Heuer watchmasters and engineers have designed an ultra-high-frequency 500Hz spring oscillating system that vibrates a phenomenal 3,600,000 beats per hour, 125 times faster than most existing mechanical chronographs ever created and 10 times quicker than the former world-record holders TAG Heuer Calibre 360 and TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph.

The 100% TAG Heuer-built Mikrotimer Flying 1000 Concept Chronograph capitalizes on the construction of the integrated TAG Heuer Carrera Mikrograph 1/100th Second Chronograph and is equipped with two escapements:

• Regular time: 4 Hz, 28,800 beats per hour, 42-hour power reserve.
• Ultra fast time: 500 Hz, 3,600,000 beats per hour.
• It relies on an unprecedented 11 patents pending.
